'you deserve to be completely found in your surroundings, not lost within them'
A chair for you to be found in.
Individual Therapy offers you a space each week for you to focus on your issues and needs. The focus of this time is you.
The power of retelling the story of what is going on for you is well researched and evidenced as a healing act. This requires time from you & careful active listening form a trained therapist. I am experienced in offering this.
Your therapeutic work begins in session, but often the time between sessions a proves fertile time for processing and growth.
Therapy can be the safe place for you to explore painful times and experiences in your life. For some it is a time to contemplate trying something new, & to explore what that means for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A place of refuge to reflect, rest & refuel.
I believe counselling is a refuge in challenging times. A place and relationship where you can reflect, rest and restore.
Each week when we meet I will listen to your experiences; how it was for you, what it meant for you then, and how it is impacting you now. In time we might look at what is 'behind' your story.
As a humanistic psychotherapeutic counsellor I work carefully with you.
Together we ensure that your sense of what is safe is understood. Your pace, what you need to feel secure, is vital to our exploration what you are bringing to therapy.
Trust, empathy, patience and acceptance are the values that unpin the way I work, over seen by the BACP Code of Ethics I adhere to.
